Weaver, a 6-foot-6, 210-pound guard from Cocoa, Fla., will have to sit out the 2020-21 season as a transfer. He will then have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

“We’re excited to welcome Elijah to the Flyer family,” Dayton coach Anthony Grant said in a press release. “He is a very talented young man whose skill set is well-suited to our style of play. He adds size and experience in the backcourt along with the ability to make plays for himself and his teammates. His personality, leadership and competitive character will allow him to fit very well into the fabric of our team and the campus community at large.”
